Woke up this morning not wanting to hike, just felt tired. Made myself get up and go do the 8 miles to the next shelter. Legs felt weak and felt like I didn’t have any juice. We got a major thunderstorm last night and I was grateful to be in a shelter and not in a tent.
There was some trail magic for the holiday
